Event Details

Calling all kids and families to join us for a fun fall volunteer project at the Putnam Indian Field School, a preschool located in Greenwich, CT.

We're excited to roll up our sleeves to help prepare the garden for winter with our partners at the school. This will be a family-friendly, 2-hour project with tasks for everyone ages 2 and up!

 

Below, please find a volunteer job description and a list of items that may be helpful to bring on the day of the project. It's our goal to make your experience fun, uplifting, and kid-friendly. This is an opportunity for customers, team members, and kids to partner together in service to our community. We'll have plenty of tasks and games on-site for little ones whose attention may wander. The best part is being all together!

Also, we'll have lunch for kids and grown-ups, plus all the fixings.  Please join us for a fun-filled day of service and inspiration as we celebrate healthy communities and healthy eating together in honor of the Whole Kids Foundation!

Thank you again and look forward to seeing you soon!

Thanks!
